How to Get Started Programming: With Java
The Step-by-Step guide to becoming a Java developer without any prior experience
Programming is awesome!
Yet time and time again, I've found myself staying away from most online tutorials that claim to teach you how to code. In reality, most of them fall under one of the following categories:
- They're too basic
- They start slow, but suddenly jump ahead and leave you behind
- They only teach concepts and not real-world examples
As a self-taught programmer, I've had to skip many courses that really didn't cater to my learning style. I know the struggles of beginners, because I've been one too. That's why you need a course that will take you from the very basics, and will guide you through not only the concepts, but real projects at the right pace.
While there are many good courses out there, none of them really teach you what you need to know, in a way that all people can learn from. I've not only read and learned from them, but I've also taken the best parts from each, and laid out the information you need to know in the way you were made to learn.
Not only will you learn to create your very first application, but you'll also learn many of the best aspects of the whole coding scene. You'll learn:
- What is Programming and discover if you're up to the task
- Ways to make a living from programming
- How to choose your preferred platform (Desktop, Mobile and Web)
- How to choose the best IDE for you
- The installation and setup procedure for your coding environment
- Creating an actual program with input and output capabilities
This isn't some long video tutorial either. This is a, go-at-your-own-pace, PDF guide.
Note: Full course currently in development. For mobile users, I will be taking out the contents of the PDF and putting them as individual topics so you can read them better.
Keno Clayton is a self-taught programmer with an affinity for writing and marketing. Beginning his coding journey at the age of 13 by creating his first website, he quickly learned many powerful technologies for a variety of platforms.
After studying Computer Science at the University of Technology, Jamaica, he discovered the need for greater learning materials catered for upcoming developers. This led to the creation of the Clayton Innovations: School of Code, where he could combine his love for writing, with coding tutorials and tutoring.
Keno also develops websites and apps both as a freelancer and in his spare time for fun. You can check out his main website at Clayton Innovations.
